It also matters why he's backing it up. If it's primarily for disaster recovery, you would use a different strategy from what you'd use to deal with accidental deletion. Snapshots a almost always sufficient for the latter.
True story: At one place I worked, if you typed "quit" into nslookup, it came back with "exit.not.quit.stoopid.oursite.ourcompany.com".
You forgot all the steps it took to evolve the civets.
You're talking about "cost of time" to a bunch of Slackware users?
Less traffic in the suburbs? In what country? In US suburbs, nobody can take public transportation anywhere, so the streets and highways are choked with single-occupancy cars. The transit infrastructure is all about getting from the inner suburbs to the city center. Suburb-to-suburb commuting by public transit means turning a 30-minute drive into a three hour trip downtown and back.
Back when the transit systems were designed, they never anticipated the commuting patterns we have today.
Also, reverse commuting isn't just for hipsters. Outer-ring suburbs are too expensive for low-wage workers.
Can't really redo the view, the early observing sites are all in heavily light polluted areas
I did that too, at the last startup I worked for. After months of 100-hour weeks, a 60-hour week *did* feel like a breeze. And that's how I knew how messed up I'd become and that it was time to get out. That was ten years ago. No more startups (or pretend startups) again, ever.
I work 40 hours a week unless *I* feel like putting in extra time on a particularly fun assignment, and I'm happily pissing away all those extra hours by having a life instead of killing myself to make other people richer.
Very simple - if a builder's EMPLOYEE puts a bug in the wall, the BUILDER pays to fix it, NOT the employee, who still gets his pay, and the builder bids/quotes the job on a flat rate
The developer, IF he owns his own company, says "I'll develop XXX for $YYY", then yeah, he's on the hook for the bug, but his employee still gets paid by the hour
It has to do with the difference between being an employee vs the owner
Want to pay me like an owner? OH, OK, so you are hiring me with a flat rate to do the job, not by the hour? No problem, I'll bid the job as such, and take out insurance, just like that contractor has
We had to fight HARD to keep our critical servers from being moved to Atlanta. There's plenty of bandwidth, but the latency would kill us. But every time we need anything, it's like Oliver Twist asking for more gruel.
No, this is what happens when you underTHINK the IT budget. HP and other services organizations want you to believe that all you have to do is write them a check, and all your IT troubles will magically disappear. Instead, what really happens is that all your problems are still there, with one more layer of bureaucratic delays and miscommunications thrown in. The company I work for outsourced their IT to HP, going so far as to sell a lot of their server infrastructure (the actual hardware) to HP, and it's been a disaster, only part of which is HP's fault.
I see they haven't reversed the horrible misfeature of the "awesome" bar being restricted to whatever's specified in the search bar (e.g., Wikipedia) instead of using your default search engine regardless.
Or is there an about:config setting for that which I don't know about?
Who was it who said, "Most scientific discoveries aren't hailed with 'Eureka!', but rather with, 'Hmmm, that's weird.'"?
There once was a babe born in space
The first of the whole human race
But the kid's DNA
Looked like bad macrame
Cos nobody shielded that place
Don't give me none of your aggravation, YIC!
Wouldn't a few humans amount to a small hill of beans pretty well?
